Project elements for the two pump stations include the construction of new pump stations including all civil, architectural, landscaping, structural, mechanical, electrical, and I&C engineering.

  • Fountain Springs Pump Station will include five (5) new 3,150 gpm pumps and a rehabilitation of the existing dual force main.
  • Indian Creek Pump Station will include two (2) new 350 gpm pumps and a new 6-inch diameter dual force main, along with other site improvements.

The existing pump stations will be demolished after the new pump stations are constructed and are placed into service.
